I am complex.

I want peace and stability in my life.

I have a wonderful family.

I wish for financial stability.

I hate whiners.

I miss my sister and her family and the South(sometimes).

I hear music and the voices of those I love.

I wonder if my life will ever get easier.

I regret that I could never have children because of infertility.

I dance when I am alone .

I sing to Daughtery and Nickleback on the radio (very badly).

I cry very seldom(except at sappy commercials).

I am not always empathetic toward people who are going through similar things that I have been through and who whine about it.(I see a lot of this in my job)

I take photos and want to learn to crochet.

I write to express what I feel inside and can't voice out loud.

I confuse myself sometime.

I don't blog when I am stressed but do blog on a lot of Wednesdays(only consistent day I have off each week).

I need very little to be happy( books, a roof over my head and someone to love me).

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon--instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. - Dale Carnegie

You really let your readers in with this post. It was nice getting to "know" you a little better.

I can relate to a lot of things on this list. A lot.

I wish you peace and contentment - most days I don't know if true happiness is obtainable but I think these two things are.

Oh, what a wonderful quote and so true! We do spend so much time looking ahead that we forget what is right here, right now. So good to know more about you...so very honest.

Shelby said...

"I am complex" really says what we all are.

Me too. What you said.

Sara said...

Thank you for your honest sharing here. Yes, "now" is really all we've got but it is so easy to live with our eyes behind or ahead. I think I'll turn off the computer now and go give my cat a hug, my husband a kiss, and sit down with that good book just waiting for my attention.

Well, no matter what else happens in your daily routine, know that I always enjoy hearing from you and look forward to your posts.

I have finally come to the conclusion that life doesn't get easier. Sigh. But after shouldering heavy loads one receives a mounting ability to dive into the moments that are good...and to enjoy simple, beautiful things (that others don't often see).

Yolanda, what beautiful thoughts to write and share in such simple phrases. The one that strikes me most is the simple things that make you happy. I often think that I can handle anything, so long as I can have a cup of tea, craft a few things, read a good book. Amazing of all the things to desire in this world, it's the little things that keep us going from day to day.

This is a wonderful post, Yolanda, and I love the format that you said it in. Thank you so much for sharing some of your soul with us.
Hope you have a wonderful day off!

Oh Yolanda,

Whenever I find the time to slip in here for a visit I am blessed. This list echoes so many beats of my own yearning heart. Thank you for this window into you . . .
